Hey there crafty peeps!
If you are here looking for the Susan K. Weckesser
blog hop check out the post below. If you are looking for the
Faber-Castell/May arts blog hop you will have to come back on Friday for my post!
So here we are mid week and of course I have another post for you!
This little purse and matching card were so fun to make!
The purse is a little canvas bag from Hobby Lobby.
I even hand made the flowers from the Fiber Natural stack!
Here is a close up- I drew them, rolled them and then painted my little roses
with a wet paint brush dipped in Gelatos! The fiber stack has a slight yellow
tint to it so the flowers look two toned. I painted the leaves green.
The ribbon, bag and purse I colored yellow with water & Gelatos, then dipped the
edges on my mat, where I had mixed water and Gelatos in metallic melon!
The Fiber Natural stack was great because it soaked up the color but it also stopped spreading quickly,
so I would definitely do experiments on the paper you plan to use.
Then I added the burlap on top, this stack has a paper backing on the burlap
so it is easy to adhere to another surface (unlike burlap would be by itself!)
Then I added ink to the edges with a Stampers Big Brush.
I really love the contrast between the burlap and the rich color the fiber natural stack holds!
This card could be used for any occasion!
